      BELIEVE - is my fav. I love this lens, and have linked to it from my lens: Secrets to success: 10 ways to stay "motivated" as an Artist. It's the little things like these that add up. I collected a bucketful of little rocks from some of my favorite places - cleaned them - wrote some one word affirmations like these on them - then placed them all over my house and property. When I happen upon them - they make me smile (and other people too).

      Believe is very powerful in my opinion. I also loved A Poem With Single Words That Inspire! Thanks. Awesome! Inspiring! Creative!

      I like one word motivators that are verbs. My favorite one would be "Write!"

      "Understand". I remember hearing once when you get frustrated with a situation like when someone's late or doesn't call, think "What else could this mean?" so this kind of condenses that. Nice lens. Thanks.

      Dare, because it really pushes you to challenge your own boundaries and limits.

      ...And how are you doing today? 'funominal' A tough caregiver saying explains it all... it's just another nominal fun day, implying acceptance without complaint.

      Value is the one for me...I value everything at the moment and definitely think it's important to value what you have and the people close to you, otherwise it's easy to lose sight of the important things in life :)

      Believe is the one that motivates me. I love all the words you have on this lens though. I try to motivate my kids every day with affirmations and all these one word one are great.

      Gratitude - everything starts with it and, if you expect to get further, you have to be grateful.
